painting brick, unglazed, inside fireplace

Posted by J Stanford on June 12th, 2000 05:56 AM

I am currently remodeling!!! I need information about painting brick, unglazed, inside fireplace. Do you use a masonery primer, a special prep? Do I need to make sure it says for unglazed? Do I then use the paint, i.e. satin, that I will be using on the woodwork over this area? I am getting opposing answers on this and need help??? Also I have a fireplace insert (black), that has rust marks on some of the places. Can this be sanded off? The glass doors just lift off. Do I then need to use a special paint that will withstand certain temperatures? I also want to paint this the same color as the brick. We use gas logs. I am also having a mantle built around this. Does this create a special problem? As I said I need help!!! Any information would be greatly appreciated.
